More news continues to pour in regarding Google I/O 2017 conference’s keynote. Among other announcements, we witnessed some VR and AR announcements and “Visual position service” technology remained the center of attention. Google Tango is a good step towards making Augmented Reality accessible to more number of people by the company and Verizon has now jumped into the scene to partner with Asus so that more number of people get their hands on the technology.
AR Powered Asus Zenfone
In the Google I/O’s keynote yesterday, Johnny Lee who is the Tango project lead, announced that Verizon is bringing the ASUS ZenFone AR this summer. The phone is surely a treat to watch and use as its unmatched features make it superior even to the flagships of today.
Brace yourselves for the features as you might not have heard some of them before in any of the smartphones:
- 5.7-inch Quad HD display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor
- 8GB RAM
- 23MP camera
- Vapor cooling system with support for Google Daydream and Tango platforms
Asus Zenfone AR Won’t Be Cheap
It is obvious from the above-mentioned specs that ASUS Zenfone AR won’t be that much cheap and it is likely to fall in the price category of smartphones like LG G6 or Galaxy S8. But the question is that would you still prefer LG and Samsung’s flagships over these high-end specifications with the added AR technology? Think well about it!
